New car parking machines installed across the borough

Published: Tuesday, 22nd January 2019

Over 100 new car parking machines are being installed across the borough to make it quicker and easier for residents and visitors to pay for parking.

The new 116 machines will allow residents to use their advantage card to secure reduced parking rates across 27 council owned car parks as well as including the option to pay by debit or credit card.  

Cllr Mike Airey, lead member for environment services including parking, flooding, housing and performance management said: “Investing in our parking machines across 27 key council owned car parks will ensure that residents are able to quickly and conveniently park without scrabbling around for the correct change.

“We have also ensured that the new machines can easily read our Advantage Card meaning more residents will be able to take advantage of the reduced car parking charges offered by the scheme.”

The car parking machine replacement scheme has begun with all machines to be replaced by the middle of March 2019 or earlier and include:
